Lunch Break...



Among the many musings on his own exquisite artistry, Phil Solomon has also used his blog as a means of offering rare insights into the various daily exchanges of his close friend, collaborator, and colleague Stan Brakhage, as Solomon puts it, “to try and help those people who didn’t really know him what daily life with Stan was like (rather than Brakhage…)”.  These are truly invaluable to those of us who did not have a chance to be in his presence, and can offer snippets of revelations not found in the many pages written on the man and his work.  Solomon has most recently posted a striking 16mm glimpse into Brakhage’s delightfully idiosyncratic working process:

I was wondering if you'd be interested in covering my work on your blog. I am a NO BUDGET UNDERGROUND FILMMAKER. Yeah, yeah, there's a billion of these, but just watch this trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-CO79YUAIcw and I think you'll see it's something worth covering. MAYBE. I figured I'd try to send one of my films your way to see if you want to watch.. it's called NO REASON TO EXIST, you can d/l it here: http://www.archive.org/download/NoReasonToExist_591/Part3-NoReasonToExistadamCooley2009.avi ... http://directoradamcooley.angelfire.com has more info ... not trying to spam, just trying to get interesting people interested. Hope you don't mind, feel free to delete this if you do mind, great blog either way. Get in touch with me (mradamcooley@hotmail.com) if you wanna chat, thanks... Take care.-ac
